First Alert Summary
Good morning my friends! An area of high pressure hangs around for South Carolina today, producing plenty of sunshine in the Midlands, with comfortable humidity levels once again. Highs will rise to the mid 80s, following up lows in the 50s this morning!
On Wednesday, a weak trough should sweep over or close to the region, producing a few extra clouds, but it will still be dry and comfortable. Heading towards next weekend is when things could get a little more interesting, which can be analyzed with some initial humidity trends. It’s not going to be the biggest jump in humidity, but we could be seeing some tropical moisture into Saturday.
Most models agree that a weak low pressure system will develop just off the coast of Georgia/South Carolina. Now where that system goes once it develops fully is still uncertain, but if it moves ashore we can expect some rain showers to return to the region on Saturday. However, if it stays offshore or heads to the north into North Carolina then we could stay dry. Stay tuned for updates!
